Description
Arranged as a diary around a calendar year, this thick volume tells many individual stories from many wars down the ages, with several compelling entries for each day of the year. The diarists range from common foot-soldiers to those charged with orchestrating battle, from the Home Front to the Holocaust, and include famous writers, political leaders, and ordinary working people enveloped by events over which they have little influence.

"The writers are mere flotsam on the tides of war. Their words are subjective, partial, personal, sometimes prejudiced, and occasionally mundane. But taken together and spanning centuries of warfare, they are the very stuff and substance of human experience."Times (London)
